About Black Dog Recreation

While teaching is my true passion and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with kids nine months of the year, I also love helping people get out and enjoy the outdoors. Growing up camping and taking backpack trips out west, I have come to love the freedom of going to the lake to fish and enjoying hikes through Wisconsin's abundant scenery. My wife and I have three great kids that have changed our ability to be gone for our summers, but would love the opportunity to help you enjoy a weekend away from home. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We will do everything within our power to accommodate your vacation needs for this camping season.

We had a great camping weekend with Betty. John was great to work with. He delivered the trailer to our campsite on time and was extremely friendly. Betty was perfect for my wife and I. It was a nice place to cool off when it got hot and it was a great shelter from the rain. The bed was very comfortable.
We will definitely look this up again next year. Thank you.

Everything was on time and ready for us, including a cool camper with the AC on, the outside awning up, and large outdoor rug in place. Thank you John!

Our travel trailer was very comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed. All appliances and facilities functioned perfectly. We were very satisfied with the whole process and will definitely rent from Black Dog again.

We appreciated that black dog recreation made camping a reality for our family. This was our first time ever camping in a rv. John was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was responsive to any questions we had. The drop off/pick up arrangement was amazing. The rv was clean and served as an excellent accommodation for our camping trip. Would highly recommend booking your next rv with black dog recreation!

John was great to work with. He was easy to contact, and answered any questions I had. “The General” worked out great for our family of 6. The back bunk room was awesome for our 4 kids. I would definitely rent this again, and recommend it to others!

We had an amazing experience, John from Black Dog Recreation was so accommodating. We opted to have the camper delivered to our campsite in Baraboo and when we arrived it was set up and ready to go, the process could not have been any easier. Thank you John, we will defiantly be renting from you again in the future!

This was our second time to rent a trailer from Black Dog Recreation. John has made it very easy for us to plan our trips to Oshkosh WI for AirVenture where we camp with other airplane enthusiasts. The trailer we rented this time was the Couple's Getaway. It is perfect for two people and the queen sized bed was very comfortable! The slide-out makes the living area much more roomy. If you have another guest with you, there is a sofa that makes into a futon bed. The refrigerator was a good size and worked very well. There was also an ice cube tray included. The freezer was large enough to fit two bags of ice that we bought at the local store, so we had plenty of ice for drinks. We were planning to cook spaghetti the first night and John made sure we had a pot and colander. We highly recommend this company!
